Here's a brand new downtempo album from Psychoz released on Avatar Records. I have to say that this is definitely one of the best chill-out albums I have heard this year. The production is simply amazing!

 

TOP 3

 

1. Heavenly 04:53

Starts off incredibly beautifully with some string instruments and excellent percussion. It's a slow and lush track that goes into some deep territoriies in its second half.

Also, that bassline is absolutely fantastic. It smoothes things so well... This is my favorite track on the album, a perfect opener.

 

4. Perpetual Mysticism 05:06

This track is very similar in mood to the first one with its lush synths and growly basslines, but it ain't fast. Definitely a similar style and just as gorgeous.

The ethnic infuences are more pronounced with distinctive flutes. In the middle section the track changes the mood with a siren sound, which is totally unexpected, but it works. In the end it returns back to its initial form.

 

5. Psychoz vs Liquid Crystal - Follow the Stars 05:27

Another perfect, melodic intro made of ethnic string instruments and some classic, acoustic guitars. The track flows so well using vocal samples and short breakdowns that slightly change melodies each time.

There is no heavy bassline here, but the beat is really cool. In the last third it dives deeper into the psychedelic style, getting really frisky. This is a super creative track, I don't think I've ever heard anything like this before.

 

Honorable mentions:

 

7. Sahara 05:07

The opening theme is very brooding and gloomy. The beat brings it all up a bit, but the mood stays very much depressive throughout, although quite beautiful.

It's not as strong as the three tracks above, but it has its moments, which I can appreciate.

 

12. Cosmic Dub 05:26

This is such an unusual track. It doesn't really fit the album, as it is done in a totally different style. It also reminds me a lot of Photek productions, mainly because of the beat structure.

Nevertheless, it's a trippy tune with some very creative elements. I like every moment of it, but since it's so different from the rest I'm putting it in the honorable mentions section.
